YAKIMA, WA - Power bills can sometimes be an overwhelming cost in a families’ monthly budget.
Qualifying Pacific Power customers in the Lower Valley have options. The Pacific Power Low Income Bill Assistance Program is now accepting applications to have qualifying customers’ rates reduced.
This assistance program is a three-tiered bill discount that is based on income. Applicants are encouraged to apply now, as spots for the program are limited and fill up fast.
